Spearphishing, Whaling, and Other Targeted Social Engineering Attacks On Your Us

Presented by

ERICH KRON, SECURITY AWARENESS ADVOCATE, KNOWBE4

About this talk

Most major enterprise data breaches begin with an attempt to fool a single user on your network. Whether they are targeting top executives, financial decision makers, or IT people who maintain passwords and credentials, today’s cyberattackers often are going after specific individuals in your organization. And as the holiday shopping season begins, these attacks on individuals may become easier – and more frequent. In this eye-opening webinar, top experts on phishing and social engineering will discuss the motives and methods that attackers use to execute these targeted “spearphishing” attacks. You’ll get insight on how the attackers choose their social engineering targets, the methods they use to find out about those individuals, and the exploits they execute to fool specific users into giving up sensitive information. You’ll also get recommendations on how to prevent this early reconnaissance, as well as the attacks themselves, and how to train your users to recognize an attack before it creates a compromise.
